I don't see how "provided" could mean anything else, in "provided such
versions remain available under these terms in addition to ...".

If you, the initial author, release the work under the BSD license in addition
to the QPL, and I then take the code, modify it and place my modifications
under the GPL, then the Software is no longer available under these [QPL]
terms.  This "provided" has been violated.  I'm not allowed to do that,
and you (the initial author) don't have permission to give me permission
to do so--the above "provided" explicitly denies you that.

Where am I wrong?
